BENEFITS OF BLOWN-IN INSULATION

NO GAPS OR VOIDS - This is the principle advantage of blown-in insulation. As opposed to laying batt's in the attic, the use of blown-in insulation allows the product to fill the area completely and envelope any corners, beams, wires, pipes, cables, or framing voids. It helps to create a true insulated building envelope. A well-insulated building will help to reduce outside noises, keep the coolness in, keep the the heat out, and is a critical element to whole house performance.

TREATED MATERIAL / FIRE DETERRENT - Blown-in insulation is normally treated with borate, a fire retardant that additionally acts as an insect repellent. This reduces the amount of bugs living in your attic's insulation while protecting your home in the event of a fire. In addition, with the proper use of foam sealing, blown-in insulation will reduce the amount of airflow through your attic. This is because blown-in insulation does not leave room for air to travel freely. This feature is an additional fire deterrent since fires need air and a sealed cavity with no airflow would suffocate any fire. It is impossible to completely prevent these voids and gaps when you are using batted insulation.

EASE OF INSTALLATION - The installation of blown-in insulation is easier than the installation of other forms of insulation and thus there is less of a chance of something going wrong. The installers at Carolina Energy Conservation are extremely proficient in the installation of blown-in insulation. Typically one of our installers will man the hose, filling the cavities, while another installer will follow behind with a pair of shears, shaving the excess material flush with the studs. Our crew cleans up and puts the remaining blown-in insulation material back into the truck for reuse.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY - one of the most important features of blown-in insulation is that the insulation is composed almost entirely from recycled newspapers, books, and glass. This allows us to re-insulate your home and make it more comfortable in a way that is friendly to our environment.
